  1. Thanks Jeff. going to see if a local plastic shop will work with me.
  2. Jeff, we are looking to replace the glass bezel face the covers the fuel gage in our 98 986... I was detailing the car and the instrument cluster was fully removed for good measure, but a household object and a cat :oops: interfered with it and this part of the glass is snapped. WONDERFUL :( I read in the thread below that there might be hope. I already removed the bezel with a utility knife (may or may not have been the best thing but the cut is clean and will glue fine) http://www.renntech.org/forums/index.php?s...%20Filter&st=15 Where do i get a cut piece of clear plastic for replacement? I borrowed your pic ... this is exactly what we're talking about here... Thanks Rob
  3. Tool Pants, How difficult is it and what tools are required to swap out a 986 VDo for a 5 guage 996 like you did?
  4. Definitely not. That's why I posted it there. The connection to the comcast server is slow. If anyone has trouble with it just PM me for the info.
  5. Ahahah this is great. First weather... now Renntech... thank you loren, for you officially made my wife's sh*t list. :D
  6. Just though I'd share some local business with the world. The Ultimate Garage is mainly a supplier of Facom tools and Lista Cabinets (nice stuff), but they also sell parts for Porsche, BMW, and MB. Apperantly they outfitted Prestige Porsche (an excellent NY/NJ dealer) http://www.ultimategarage.com/prestige.html http://www.prestigeporsche.com But most importantly i wanted everyone to see this guy's personal garage re-design :thumbup: He's a porsche man B) enjoy
  7. l33t9eek, welcome :cheers: Grant's RS can be seen here.
  8. Okay, here it is... :thumbup: it went pretty well. I threw this page together so we could save some file space here (plus as a comcast customer you get 25megs of free webspace on their lagging servers, so what the heck... not a permanent solution but good for now) http://home.comcast.net/~renntechreference/ Tool Pants and PorscheFan, thanks again for the information and insight.
  9. What color is your cab??? (I don't have an '02 options guide on me) Beautiful!!!
  10. Definitely. I'll post my progress this weekend. Thanks guys.
  11. Loren, Tool Pants and all, I want to remove the boxster air intake facias from the rear quarter panels in order to make molds of them. I will be developing something custom and i'm not a huge fan of Techart or Tweeks intakes. Is this possible without removing the rear quarter panels? Thanks, Parker
  12. Just found a black set from a 1997 Boxster on eBay! "Buy It Now" works like a charm in stituations like these :) $250... I called them first to ask the condition, all good/no water damage
  13. it definitely looks shorter than the turbo, maybe in the cockpit. perhaps the back "seats" really are missing. and the rims look like they're 17". It's a Boxster Turbo :P
  14. Jeff... Can't wait for the DVD set ;) FYI... used B&M for sale on 6Speedonline.... http://www.6speedonline.com/forums/showthr...=&threadid=1074 $150 + shipping
  15. OK- what if the thread count on the left cable was slightly off from the original setting... a little on the short side? This is what happened to me in HASTE :oops: last year. My shifter is slightly tilted toward the driver's side, but the play on the tranny is the same. Has this changed the dynamics/efficiency of changing gears?
  16. Mark, thanks. I wasn't sure if 18X10s were too wide for the fenders. I have an offset guide to help. Now the question is 18" or 19"... If the profile is too low, i'm gonna be kicking myself in the rear. NJ roads are HORRIBLE! Cheers, Parker
  17. Looking at aftermarket rims, Cargraphics to be exact. Is there any way to fit 18x10s or 19x10s? thx, parker
  18. just recently the radio on my '98 2.5L began crackling, but only when on AM mode. It gets worse as my RPMs increase. Is this in fact the ground losening? :huh: Peace, Parker
  19. as I begin my interior customization project, I am in need of instructions to remove the dashboard and defroster(from the side air vent to the alarm light) pieces. I already have instructions for the vents, center console etc. Just need to know how to remove the big boy... ;) Parker
  20. I'm planning on upgrading the speaker system. Does anyone know the speaker dimensions for both the door and the dash? also wondering if anyone had component combination suggestions... Gracias in advance Parker
  21. Jeff, GREAT pics. Peforming surgery this weekend. Thanks to you and Henry :D
  22. does anyone have any suggestions regarding the subtleties of removing the amber lense when implementing the soldering iron trick? I have instructions from a few sources, but I was wondering if there were any extra finess moves to prevent screwing it up. Thanks, Parker
  23. Thank you Jeff. I'll let you know what I find. - rs
